Martins freelances as a Yacht Designer
Studying at Teesside was the best decision I have ever made
I started working for Dixon Yacht Design before graduation and have spent the past four years there. I climbed from an intern position to be a yacht designer.
University gave me great insight into how the design industry works in the UK.
This was mostly due to the summer placement work experience, as well as the guest lectures where designers talked about their time in the industry.
Also the time spent learning from the wonderful University lecturers and staff helped immensely.
I guess now the next big goal is to one day have my own company.
I really enjoyed just how much the staff care about their job and us, the students.
I also appreciated our design studio and the workshops, literally the best creative environment anyone could ask for.
I would – studying at Teesside was the best decision I have ever made.
